My two cents on healthy living resolutions, which are seemingly obvious, is they often get pushed aside and replaced with "easier" plans. Let me get to the point here; one must, as much as possible, eat quality foods and exercise.
I stress exercise because it is the part that gets left behind most. Not only in the "long run" does exercising make your body look better, it will make your body feel better. By saying exercising, the reference is not just to the sometimes monotonous cardio vascular training (tread mills, stair machines, walking, jogging etc..) but also to weight and strength training. Weight and strength training has the added benefit of burning calories long after you have ceased exercising and will make you look healthier and feel younger. Don't envision "muscle guy" here, that only happens to those who take weights (and dietary supplimentation) to the extreme.
We all can do ourselves a great benefit finding activities to do for 20 minutes a day, 4-6 days a week. Mixing your activities up and keeping it fun can be crucial. If you don't have a gym to go to or equipment at home don't worry, there are exercise routines out there for just about any situation (google search it). So if you are not as active or in shape as you would like, I say leave the trend diets alone, explore new activities, and feel good doing it.
Have a great day!
